Object
global
The global object is a pre-defined object that serves as a placeholder for the global properties and functions of JavaScript. All other predefined objects, functions, and properties are accessible through the global object.
Constants
Infinity  :  Number
representation for Infinity as an Integer
NaN  :  Number
representation for Not a Number as an Integer
PIPELET_ERROR  :  Number
represents an error during pipelet execution
PIPELET_NEXT  :  Number
represents the next pipelet to fire
slotcontent  :  Object
Provides access to the SlotContent object. Available only in ISML templates that are defined as the Slot's template. For example, <isprint value="${slotcontent.callout}"> will print out the callout message of the active Slot.
See Also:
undefined  :  Object
representation for undefined
webreferences  :  Object
Provides access to WSDL definition files in a Cartridge's webreferences folder. For example, webreferences.mywebservice loads the mywebservice.wsdl file and returns an instance of dw.rpc.WebReference. The WebReference instance enables you to access the actual web service via the WebReference.getDefaultService() method.

webreferences2  :  Object
Provides access to WSDL definition files in a Cartridge's webreferences2 folder. For example, webreferences2.mywebservice loads the mywebservice.wsdl file and returns an instance of dw.ws.WebReference2. The WebReference2 instance enables you to access the actual web service via the WebReference2.getDefaultService() method.

Method Detail
decodeURI
static decodeURI(uri : String) : String
Unescapes characters in a URI component.
Parameters:
uri - a string that contains an encoded URI or other text to be decoded.

Returns:
true if the object is interpreted as being empty

encodeURI
static encodeURI(uri : String) : String

uri - a String that contains the URI or other text to be encoded.
Returns:
a copy of uri with certain characters replaced by hexadecimal escape sequences.

encodeURIComponent
static encodeURIComponent(uriComponent : String) : String
Escapes characters in a URI component.
Parameters:
uriComponent - a String that contains a portion of a URI or other text to be encoded.
Returns:
a copy of uriComponent with certain characters replaced by hexadecimal escape sequences.

escape
static escape(s : String) : String
Encodes a String.
Parameters:
s - the String to be encoded.
Returns:
a copy of s where characters have been replace by hexadecimal escape sequences.

eval
static eval(code : String) : Object
Execute JavaScript code from a String.
Deprecated:
The eval() function is deprecated, because it's potential security risk for server side code injection.
Parameters:
code - a String that contains the JavaScript expression to be evaluated or the statements to be executed.
Returns:
the value of the executed call or null.

importClass
static importClass(classPath : Object) : void
Import the specified class and make it available at the top level. It's equivalent in effect to the Java import declaration.
Parameters:
classPath - the fully qualified class path.

importPackage
static importPackage(packagePath : Object) : void
Import all the classes in the specified package available at the top level. It's equivalent in effect to the Java import declaration.
Parameters:
packagePath - the fully qualified package path.

importScript
static importScript(scriptPath : String) : void
Imports all functions from the specified script. Variables are not imported from the script and must be accessed through helper functions. The script path has the following syntax: [cartridgename:]scriptname, where cartridgename identifies a cartridge where the script file is located. If cartridgename is omitted the script file is loaded from the same cartridge in which the importing component is located. Examples: importScript( 'example.ds' ) imports the script file example.ds from the same cartridge importScript( 'abc:example.ds' ) imports the script file example.ds from the cartridge 'abc'
Parameters:
scriptPath - the path to the script.

isFinite
static isFinite(number : Number) : boolean
Returns true if the specified Number is finite.
Parameters:
number - the Number to test.
Returns:
true if the specified Number is finite, false otherwise.

isNaN
static isNaN(object : Object) : boolean

object - the Object to be tested as a number
Returns:
True if the object is not a number

isXMLName
static isXMLName(name : String) : boolean
Determines whether the specified string is a valid name for an XML element or attribute.
Parameters:
name - the String specified
Returns:
True if the string is a valid name

parseFloat
static parseFloat(s : String) : Number

Parameters:
s - the String to parse.
Returns:
Returns the float as a Number.

parseInt
static parseInt(s : String, radix : Number) : Number
Parses a String into an integer Number using the specified radix.
Parameters:
s - the String to parse.
radix - the radix to use.
Returns:
Returns the integer as a Number.

parseInt
static parseInt(s : String) : Number
Parses a String into an integer Number. This function is a short form for the call to parseInt(String, Number) with automatic determination of the radix. If the string starts with "0x" or "0X" then the radix is 16. In all other cases the radix is 10.
API Versioned:
From version 16.1. ECMAScript 5 compliance: removed support for octal numbers.
Parameters:
s - the String to parse.
Returns:
Returns the integer as a Number.

require
static require(path : String) : Module
The require() function supports loading of modules in JavaScript. The function works similar to the require() function in CommonJS. The general module loading works the same way, but the exact path lookup is slightly different and better fits into Demandware concepts. Here are the details for the lookup:
  • If the module name starts with "./" or "../" then load it relative to the current module. The module can be a file or a directory. A file extension is acknowledged, but not required. If it's a directory a 'package.json' or a 'main' file is expected. If the 'package.json' does not contain a main entry, then default to main file in the directory. Access to parent files can't go beyond the cartridges directory. Access to other cartridges is explicitly allowed.
  • If the module name starts with "~/" it's a path relative to the current cartridge.
  • If the module name starts with "*/" try to find the module in all cartridges that are assigned to the current site.
  • A module with the name "dw" or which starts with "dw/" references Demandware built-in functions and classes. For example var u = require( 'dw/util' ); loads the classes in the util package, which can be then used like var h = new u.HashMap();
  • A module, which doesn't start with "./" or "../" is resolved as top level module.
    • The module name is used to find a folder in the top cartridge directory, typically a cartridge itself, but it can also be a simple folder.
    • If nothing is found, the module name is used to look into a special folder called "modules" in the top cartridge directory. That folder can be used by a developer to manage different modules. For example a developer could drop a module like "less.js" just into that folder.
If the require function is used to reference a file then an optional file extension is used to determine the content of the file. Currently supported are the extensions ordered by priority:
  • js - JavaScript file
  • ds - Demandware Script file
  • json - JSON file
Parameters:
path - the path to the JavaScript module.
Returns:
an object with the exported functions and properties.

trace
static trace(msg : String, params : Object...) : void
Formats and prints the message using the specified params and returns the formatted message. The format message is a Java MessageFormat expression. Printing happens in the script log output.
Parameters:
msg - the message to format.
params - one, or multiple parameters that are used to format the message.

unescape
static unescape(string : String) : String
Decode an escaped String.
Parameters:
string - the String to decode.
Returns:
a copy of the String where hexadecimal character sequences are replace by Unicode characters.
